Hi Friends,

A couple of weeks ago, I found out a dear friend of mine was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Sad to say it is inoperable.  I made this card for her to give. Please keep her in your prayers her name is Bonnie.


I used a lot of scraps for the  center of the card and a left over hexagon.
This will please Bonnie, she likes recycled things.

PTI paper ink and die, sentiment Verve.

Good Morning Friends,

I did not get in until 9:30 last night.  It took that long to get the room ready. It is mainly used by the high school youth group. Needless to say it needed a bit of cleaning, prior to decorating, unfortunately I forgot to bring the room - smell remover.  I have to get hopping, but before I do I wanted to share the card I made for the women with you. I will have these in my Etsy store and for each card purchased I will be donating $1.50 to the women's mission trip to Zambia, from our church which is TLC.org.  Each card varies, by the word's in the background, on the left side. I'll check in later and let you know how it went. I know each woman that goes will be blessed. Click Here to go to my ETSY store





Have a blessed day, Diana

Hi Friends,
I have a lot going on this week as I am sure many of you do. I am so happy Easter is here I love this day!!! I think my card speaks for it self  and that is what makes me happy.

Happy Easter!!
I have had this cartridge for quite a while and after having used it and looking at it, I think it was made to use in Sunday school to help tell bible stories.  All the images remind me of children's bible story books. The images are very simple and each one depicts a character out of the New Testament.  I used the New testament cartridge along with Nursery tales  imagine cartridge  to create the patterned paper. The background paper is from pink paisley. The stamped sentiment is from  Close To My Heart Hopscotch Alphabet. I love the design of this stamp set. The alphabet comes with both upper and lowercase and numbers and punctuations.


I used foam tape to pop Jesus up, give Him a little dimension. I love the way this card came out.


Supplies used:
CTMH Hopscotch alphabet stamp set
CTMH 3d foam tape
CTMH ink chocolate
Cricut cart. New Testament
Imagine cart Nursery tails

Hi Friends,

I signed, up last Monday with Close to my Heart. Within 72 hours my kit arrived.

Before you watch the video I have to warn you I did not edit it. At the end where you see me looking for the inks I keep referring to them as stamps.  I really meant to say ink -- Yes I do know the difference. I am still amazed at all the goodies in this kit and a bit overwhelmed. The inks are on page 138 in the idea book. You can look at that on the online catalogue or if you prefer a physical catalog,  they are located on my right sidebar.

There are forty different colors including the black.


If you have any questions at all about any of the products feel free to contact me I have spent over 40 hours this last week familiarizing myself with them and all the training I could consume.
On with the show.


Now is the best time ever to become a  a consultant with CLOSE TO MY HEART - contact me I will tell you why.
Have a blessed day, Diana

CLICK HERE for the DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY APRIL Linky  CHALLENGE
CLICK HERE for the BBTB2 challenge EASTER post



Good Morning Friends,

It is design team day over at Bitten by the Bug 2

Our Design team sister Brenda has chosen as the Theme of our challenge this week "Easter "  After you look at my post be sure to go over to the rest of the BBTB2 design teams blogs and see and learn how they did their projects.
I have to tell you a funny story.  First of all here is a question... Did you ever notice how my team mate  Brenda and I call ourselves twins?  Here is how that came about... check out Brenda's blog background.  One day I changed my blog background and I had no idea it was the same as hers. When I went to her blog I thought I was still at mine and when she came over to mine, she thought she was still at hers (sounds like a Dr. Seuss story coming up, huh?  As the story goes. Every time I would enter the challenge she would say she almost used the same cricut cut. Now, today funny thing is, we did not use the same cut but they do look similar and they are both from Cricut card cartridges. I think it is fun having a blog twin.  I also think it is really nice having a wonderful team that is just like a family. Just like all the teams I have been on.


I made a few of these



 Aren't they adorable? This is the only one I embellished. I like the contrast on this one, but I have to get them in the mail today so they make it to their destination. Happy Easter Week everyone!




Supplies used:
Spring Holiday cards- Cricut cartridge
Nursery tails -Imagine cartridge
PTI vanilla cream cardstock
red/white twine- DLART etsy store
